How did you make the banner picture on the home page?

I like the banner itself but it overshadows the page. IMO the main content should be what is prominent when a person visits the webpage. Notice that when you go to Eurotrip.com there are two areas of dead space on either sides of the page. Is there any way to move the page to the right so that you’ll have one large area of dead space and the you can put a vertical banner there while also showing more of the content of the Home Page?

i can make the page wider. i dont like the idea of moving it to one side though cause i dont think it will look good…

i agree that the banner is too large, i have been trying to convince the others that it is a good idea to make it smaller again.

Tell the others that a banner is not the most important part of the webpage. People don’t go to a webpage to see the banner, they go for the content. The content should be more prominently shown.
